SCADA Redundancy- Is your system still operable during a disaster? 


We recently provided our Cloud SCADA solutions to a natural gas utility provider customer who was using a traditional on-premises SCADA system with a single server. They were concerned that if that server went down or the office where that system was housed had to close, they would be without control and alarming capabilities. 


Gas distribution safety through cloud data platformThey required a cost-effective solution for redundant monitoring and alarming on their critical town border pressure monitoring station and their critical intake stations. 


Our team was quick to set-up Emerson's Zedi Cloud SCADA as their secondary SCADA system, helping them solve their critical site redundancy problem.


It also provides more redundancy because it is a fully separate communication channel and a separate SCADA system. Also, in the event of a natural disaster, they can monitor their assets from anywhere. 


Get ahead with your planning- replace or supplement your on-premise SCADA system with Emerson's Zedi Cloud SCADA platform.
